Abstract or Description

This map shows levels of wildlife habitat suitability in relationship to Maine's conservation lands. The habitat suitability values are based on 91 priority trust species of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The habitats for each species were mapped and ranked from actual sightings or by developing habitat suitability models reflecting environmental requirements for each species. Scores for each species were then added to derive the sum of scores for all species combined.
